    What does BEAUTI mean to you?

    beau-ty (n.pl.) Any of those attributes of form, sound, color, character, behavior, achievement, etc., which give pleasure and gratification to the senses or to the mind. Something excellent of its kind.

    BEAUTI is more than physical attractiveness. BEAUTI surrounds us in many forms.

    BEAUTI portrayed inside and out. BEAUTI at every age, in every stage of life. BEAUTI of this incredible world we live in. BEAUTI of emotions and feelings of the moment. BEAUTI that cannot be put into words.

    Discovering. Cherishing. Capturing.

    Thank you for checking out my blog, feel free to look around and add a comment or send me a note. Sharing life’s BEAUTIs from my perspective…enjoy! Jenelle

Brian + Lana | Wedding

This couple has been so wonderful to work with since we connected a few months ago with a change in plans for their wedding location.  From a dock on the water in BC to a beautiful, blooming backyard of the bride’s parents in Weyburn.  The afternoon was filled with laughter, tears, hugs, some goofy fun and most of all so much love and happiness.  These two are wonderful, happy and easy going so sharing in their special, intimate celebration was a delight!  They made the planning process seem so effortless yet everywhere you looked the details and thought that went into creating what they did was certainly well done.  It goes to show just how thoughtful and organized this couple is!

Parts of the mother of the bride’s wedding dress were used for accent organza flower accents and wrapping her bouquet and the lace overlaid on her shawl that the jewelry is set on here.

A great brother and bridesman to toss flower petals infront of her!!

It was very unfortunate that Lana’s Mom ended up being in the hospital and couldn’t attend their wedding.  They made a great effort to include her as best they could and with the help of fabulous real-time technology, she shared in parts of the day by FaceTime.

The newlyweds making a champagne toast!

They were such a fun group to be out in the sunshine with!!  The groomsman took his job seriously.  Carrying her dress or tucking it in his pocket and holding her hair when it was blowing around in the wind!

Thank you very much Brian + Lana, I have really enjoyed getting to know you both and wish you the best as husband and wife!  Have a fantastic honeymoon, relaxing and enjoying time together on the yacht!!  It sounds amazing!

Alex + Jaylene | Saskatoon, Sk Wedding Portraits

I am especially excited about an event that took place earlier this week because it means I get to share these photos now!!  Alex + Jaylene are officially husband and wife!  I’m thrilled for them after having a wonderful time photographing their wedding portraits in Saskatoon.  It was an amazing couple hours!  Brimming with excitement and anticipation for their upcoming wedding day and adorably in love!

Jaylene you are an incredible person, a beautiful bride and I am so happy for you!!

In wanting to make this really special and emotional we did a first look at Victoria Park.  Getting ready in different houses and arriving separately so that this was the first time they saw one another dressed up.  It was magical as everything unfolded and the reaction of many embraces, smiles and kisses!!

It was fun to include these cute souvenirs from their trip to Disney World a few months ago.  Where they say that dreams come true and is the happiest place on earth.  These two have definitely found their happy place.  In being together!

Thank you to Renee for putting together the pretty bouquet for the radiant bride!!

Congratulations Alex + Jaylene!!!  It was an honor to share in this exciting, special time and capture your love + happiness!!  Hugs and much love!

Walkeden family

This was a really enjoyable summer evening!  A super couple that I am glad to have met.  They are all definitely easy and wonderful to be around!!  These girls are adorable and have really sweet little personalities.  They had us laughing many times!!  And their baby girl is so content and good natured.  We found some great spots in their grandparents’ yard.  And fully enjoyed the beautiful, warm sunlight!  Thank you for having me photograph your wonderful family!!

Chad + Britany | Weyburn, Sk Farm Wedding

After taking their engagement photos last month in their beautiful yard I was excited to head back over for their farm wedding!  Chad + Britany spent many hours working on projects around their house and yard.  Getting ready for their big day and thinking about having their closest family and friends share in the celebration, they put a lot of thought into everything they did.  Their outdoor ceremony location is one of my favorites!!  The trees having grown up and then together was such a pretty setting for them to join together as husband + wife.  Seeing Chad watch his stunning bride walk up the aisle with her parents was so touching.  Always a very special moment of the day to witness!

Just after we finished prep with the guys in the house and they headed out to a trailer so the bride could come to the farm, it started to rain.  Raining really hard then hail started pounding down.  As we watched out the windows and were thinking of them on their wedding day along with Chad being a farmer we all wished so badly we could make it stop!  As Britany pulled up to the house the sun came out and stayed just long enough to carry on with their outdoor ceremony!  I love what I was told afterwards that as they were coming down the aisle Chad said he lost some crop today but married the love of his life!!  And you could tell they weren’t going to let the rain, hail, wind or tornado watch get in the way of vowing their lives and love to one another!

I love this sibling moment!

We had a short time with the bride and groom at a special farmyard.  It was Chad’s grandma’s homestead. I love this old barn and it was perfect shelter from the strong wind!  A great spot for these two to cuddle in and reflect on what the day is really about.  The two of them, and their love and commitment.

It worked out really nicely that we were able to sneak out after dinner for a few more portraits in the evening sunlight!

Congratulations Chad + Britany!

Lena and Nicholas | 18 months

This little guy was wonderful along with his beautiful mommy.  He liked to be real close to mom with his teddy bear in tow.  We had lots of sweet moments and he enjoyed to be cuddled.  Making us work for the smiles but worth every effort for his cute grin!  Nicholas’ parents each moved to Canada from the Ukraine in the past few years.  It was neat to listen as Lena spoke in her native language to her son.  I think that’s one of the many gifts they’re giving their child!

Lena - I love this pictures. Thank you Jenelle for everything.
